Reward, Based In-Home Training Programs

Surf’s Up Dog Training provides different in-home dog training programsthat can specifically address and cater to your dog’s problems and your training goals. We schedule an initial in-home consultation before training begins so that we are able to create the best training plan for you. This assessment is no-obligation, meaning after we meet and discuss your case, and you wish to pursue a different course of action, you are in no way required to enroll with Surf’s Up Dog Training.

Our training is suitable for any age (puppy, adult, senior) and for any behavior issue, including anxiety and aggression. Not only will our programs target you and your dog’s individual needs, but they also follow both a reward-based and a commitment-based philosophy.

By reward-based, we aim to set your dog up for success, rather than flooding them with problem-causing stimuli and putting them in stressful situations where they will inevitably fail. We believe distraction training is an important part of training, but first we work on the basics and giving your dog the opportunity to build a foundation first before rising up.
